Republican Texas Senator Ted Cruz abandoned his state on Thursday to take a trip to Cancun, Mexico, as millions of Texas residents struggle without power and water.
The same Ted Cruz who fled to Cancun told Texans during a radio show this week that they should stay home during the winter storm.
Appearing on Joe Pags’ radio show, the far-right Texas senator told Pags, “I was speaking this weekend with a meteorologist expert who was saying (that with) the combination of these two storms, we could see 100 people lose their lives this week in Texas. So, don’t risk it. Keep your family safe, and just stay home and hug your kids.”
